1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Re: Princess and the Pea Playset on: May 08, 2010 02:40:51 PM
I'm planning loads more of these myself - i think the next one will be a mermaid theme, that seems to be my daughter's current obsession  Grin

There is a really good photo tutorial for the dolls here by PrincessNimbleThimble. I added fleece circles for boy hair styles and embroidery thread for long styles.

Thanks for all the lovely comments  Smiley

*and a little question- where do you people get zig-zag scissors, that actually cut fabric? Cheesy - i really want a pair and haven`t located a good one in years!!! (i know, awful) - and does it matter, which brand -where and what should i be looking for?

I always call them pinking shears, but i'm in the UK so i don't know if it has another name elsewhere
Amazon has some with good reviews here

I made this playset for my daughter based on the illustrations from this book

The lunchbox doubles as the front of the castle and all the pieces pack into it. Inside is a bed, complete with pea

And of course lots of matresses!

I crocheted this baby blanket using the soft waves ripple pattern in 2 shades each of pink and green and white for my (very!!) soon to be born niece. Hope she likes it!

this is really nice - you've just inspired me to take up crochet !

so i am presuming you follow the stitch pattern until you get the neckwarmer long enough, how would i do the edge?  (sorry this may be a really basic question!)

yep! i got a bit carried away, crocheting in front of the telly and it ended up longer than i had planned, cos i couldn't be bothered to stand up and try it on  Cheesy.
When i finished the length i just joined the darker colour on and did sc all around (on the long edges i did my sc in the ch 2 space at the beginning of each row, if that makes sense?  Huh ). Then i went round again, this time doing 3dc in the 1st st then sc in the next 2 st all the way round.

Sorry its a bit vague, i would do a full tute but i basically played around till i found a pattern that suited the yarn then winged it from there! Smiley

i used Sirdar denim chunky yarn, in oatmeal and the edge was chocolate i think, and i used a 6mm hook (till i snapped the top off, so i had to switch to a 5mm for the edge  Roll Eyes )
The flower has a button on the back too, so it can be buttoned on as a decoration only or buttoned through 2 layers to hold the neckwarmer together.

thanks for the comments. I'll do my best to explain 'moss' stitch  Smiley -

In the foundation chain, do 1sc in 3rd ch from hook then ch1 then skip a stitch, sc, ch 1, skip a st to end of row.
Then for the rest of the scarf you ch 2 at the beginning of each row, then *sc and ch 1 in 1st ch 1 space of previous row, skip next sc and carry on from *

The flower i got from the lionbrand site - here -
i used the medium flower
